I’ve been wanting to post an update for a few days now, but I hadn’t had the time to get some images ready. As you’ve seen, Humberto has joined our small team and has begun making efforts to get the word out! The Facebook page has gotten a considerable boost of activity, and his Marketing Journey entries are going to get very interesting in the future. I’m excited to see what happens.
Jonathan has also been working on the music for the game. It’s always a joy to listen to anything this man composes! I will upload some segments of his music in the future when gameplay videos begin to come out. I’m very happy to be working with these very talented people!

It’s also a good bait other than HP containers or other stat upgrades.
For instance, would you like to know what’s inside that urn over there?:
